Green Planet Group Reduces Debt by 2/3 -- Achieves OTC Pink Sheet Compliance

TEMPE, AZ--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2016) - Green Planet Group, Inc. (OTC PINK: GNPG), an emerging leader in green technology, announced today that it has reduced its debt load by approximately 68%, as follows:

  • The Company's largest creditor, Shelter Island Opportunity Fund, has agreed to reduce its outstanding note for incurred interest and penalties from $2,980,000 to $250,000, a reduction of $2,730,000. This reduction of debt requires that the Company raise the $250,000 by May 31, 2016.

  • The Company had a loan (plus interest) from a local bank in Oklahoma totaling approximately $156,000. Recent Court documents show the outstanding balance due is $0.00.

  • One of the Company's major investors, having invested $500,000 with accumulated interest of $30,000, has chosen to exercise their option to convert the $530,000 into 79 million shares of restricted common stock.

  • Edmond L. Lonergan, GNPG president and CEO, has received approval from the Company board of directors to convert all of his outstanding debt of $90,000 into restricted common shares at the average price over the last fiscal quarter ($0.008/share), totaling 11.2 million shares.

These reductions in Company debt will not have any negative impact on its corporate tax liabilities. The total reduction of Company liabilities is $3.5 million, which represents approximately 68% of total liabilities. The impact of this debt reduction will be reflected in the Company's fiscal year end, 2016.
